Down to the wire

I vowed to write a post once a month. So here it is.

I haven't been fishing all month and haven't made a lure. I know I am a slacker. Life always gets in the way fishing. I have thought about it and have ideas in my head but haven't transferred those to wood.

School is in full swing and I am back to writing meaningless reports. I swear that if this is all these kids are going to learn in school, they will be screwed when it comes to working in the real world. I have plenty of management experience. I have hired and fired my fair share of people. I have looked at budget numbers till I went cross-eyed and thought about the abuse I was going to catch from my boss's boss when he sees the 150K worth of right offs I have coming in the next quarter. I learned all this by doing, usually the hard way. My school was the old cliche, "school of hard Knox" or the school of "pull yourself up by the boot straps". I realize now how valuable all these experiences are. How you can't learn this stuff from a book. I want to pass this on to my classmates but I don't want to sound smug  or pretentious. So to be honest I don't know how to tell them that the theory we just covered in class is worth dick in real life. Sounds great on paper but in the real world......... I don't know. At the same time my professional experiance is limited to a specific field and company. So maybe I don't have the as much knowledge as I think I do.
Holly shit I am rambling again. Oh well its my blog I can do it if I want.

Back to hobby related stuff. I have beer! I bottled a few cases yesterday and have another 20 liters to bottle very soon. I am telling you folks, making your own beer is where its at.
Outdoor football is over for the year. My division 6 team finished 3rd in our group and just missed out on the promotion playoffs. I good season for me, I conceded just 13 goals in 15 games. My best goals against average in the 4 years of playing division football. My hobby league team finished 1st in our group, only conceding 10 goals in 13 game. We did not do well in the championship playoffs. We won our first playoff match handily but the next two were no bueno. We lost our next 4-0, went into to halftime 0-0. Their first goal came from their completely unmarked un-pressured striker who curled one into the top corner. I got a finger tip to it but could not change its course. Probably the biggest save I tried to make all season. I had time to think about how much it is going to hurt when I hit the ground, I was in the air for awhile. The second goal was a penalty, my penalty record was horrible this year. Didn't save a one. The third goal was completely my fault and the fourth was a wonder goal. The next match for the bronze I had a howler. Nothing I did was right. Worst game of the year for me. Hurts to finish the season with such a piss poor performance. We finished 4th out of 45 teams, so I guess not that bad in the long run.

Shit, more rambling.

Anyway folks, hope all is well in your worlds.

Peace and Chicken grease
